   Only edition of this bi-lingual Hebrew-English biography of R. Menahem Nathan ben Solomon Auerbach (1858-1930). The English title of Ziyyon le-Nefesh Zaddik given on the front wrapper is In Memory of a Dear Soul and the title page describes it a A Short History of the Life of Rabbi M. N. Auerbach. There is a full page photograph of R. Auerbach wearing tallit and tefillin sitting at his desk writing, presumably Talmudic novellae. Written shortly after R. Auerbachs death it notes that Chief Rabbi R. Kook spoke at the funeral in which he described the greatness, dignity, and genius of the man and explained the contents of the numerous works authored by R. Auerbach. Among the other distinguished speakers at the funeral was Chief Rabbi Uziel of Tel Aviv. The biography informs that R. Auerbach was born in Luntshitz to the renowned R. Solomon Auerbach. A prodigy, his family sent him to Palestine to continue under his studies under his grandfather, R. Meir Aeurbach, then Chief Rabbi of Palestine. On the way to the Holy land R. Auerbach, then only thirteen, became bar mitzvah in Bresslow. R. Auerbach was widely beloved and admired, as can be seen by the fact that both R. Kook and R. Sonnenfeld both held in high regard and were personally friendly with him. R. Sonnenfeld was also a fellow father-in-law with R. Auerbach. Ziyyon le-Nefesh Zaddik discusses R. Auerbachs life and includes an appeal from R. Kook to assist in the further publication and distribution of R. Auerbachs books, the most famous of which is Orah Neeman.
